Map + Directions
Park at the Twin Lakes Trailhead. Go through the gate and turn right on the trail before you cross the bridge. Travel approximately one-half mile to the junction with the Twin Lakes Tie (16E17). Turn left and follow the trail to the bridge with wood steps on each end. After crossing the bridge follow the trail to the next intersection and keep left. This will take you along the west side of the tall grass meadow. You may be surprised to see people canoeing through the meadow in the meandering narrow stream channel. Views of the rugged mountain peaks are plentiful form this side of the meadow. Follow the trail back to the Chappell Crossing Bridge and the trailhead.
